On the day of the sleep test:
During the test:
SOMNOscreen™ PLUS utilizes innovative solution for sleep diagnostics and therapy to improve accuracy, reliability and convenience.
The sleep test collects polysomnographic data according to AASM, including EEG, EOG, EMG, ECG, Nasal/Oral flow, Thoracic and abdominal effort, oximetry, snoring sound, periodic leg movement analysis, sleeping position, as well as real-time synchronized blood pressure data.
Cuff-less Continuous Blood Pressure Measurement:
According to medical researches, sleep apnea may lead to hypertension.
SOMNOmedics uses an innovative patented algorithm to measure blood pressure via the Pulse Transit Time (PTT). Blood pressure is measured continuously using the time required for the pulse wave to propagate along the vessel wall between two defined points. Such innovative technology allows data to be collected in a continuous, non-invasive and non-reactive way.
With this breakthrough technology, the SOMNOscreenTM PLUS is widely used by the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center in the United States.
Thanks to the built-in Bluetooth data transmitter, the SOMNOscreen™ plus always works wirelessly – allowing for remote signal check – giving you peace of mind whilst doing ambulatory/home sleep test.
Home Sleep Camera:
With built-in infrared illuminated camera, all activities such as sleepwalking, limb movements and bruxism can be recorded to improve diagnosis. Adding video to this powerful device enables new opportunities to offer homes sleep test to an exceptionally high standard.
